    True but just as much opposition comes from left wing feminists.

    Feminists and right wing evangelicals even have a strange and unholy alliance when it comes to the common ground of opposing pornography and prostitution.

    I've always said...if men could make a living at it, it would not only be legal but it would be taught in universities and you could get graduate degrees in the field.

    Again your philosophy argues from a flawed premise.

    There is a reason more enlightened locales hold good Samaritans harmless if they cause injury while helping someone but an ER room doctor had better have malpractice insurance.

    There is a difference between your neighbor giving you across the fence investment advice and a investment firm doing so.

    A big difference between a child accidentally shooting a friend and a man hiring a hit man to kill his wife.

    Life has nuances, has had them since fire was new but not yet improved, that some embryonic philosophies refuse to see them doesn't mean they are not there...

    prostitution, it would have to be regulated, ...for commerce, and the health and safety of the public.

    I know my history just fine. If I recall the situation correctly they found rotting flesh and other disease causing conditions in a Chicago plant when looking for proof of the horror described in the Jungle. The jungle was information released to the public that as you would expect alarmed those that consume meat and lead to them wanting something to be done about it. Which as you might be aware people informing the public about things going on in industry is a market force used to correct problems that exist.

    It's not my religion. Nice dodge of my counter-point though.

    Genesis isn't the first record of anything. You would know that if you bothered to educate yourself on something before speaking about it, like prostitution.
